NAAN BREAD....yeast free
6 tablespoons greek yoghurt
2 egg whites
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 heaped teaspoon minced garlic
4 cups plain flour
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda
in a jug, mix the yoghurt, egg whites, milk, oil and garlic.
in a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and bicarb soda.
pour the liquid into the dry ingredients and stir to a dough.
knead lightly in bowl (if too sticky add a little more flour).
cover bowl with a tea towel and let rest for at least 30 minutes.
heat a frypan on medium heat till hot.
turn dough onto a floured board and cut into 12 even pieces.
roll each piece out to about 3 x 6 inches.
when you are ready to cook each piece (my pan only holds 1 at a time) lightly brush the piece with olive oil
and place oil side down on the fry pan. brush top with oil.
cover fry pan with a lid and cook until top starts to show bubbles, about 1 minute.
flip over and cook other side. doesn't take as long, should just have patches
of golden brown. turn heat down if too dark.
wrap naan in a tea towel to keep warm and soft while others
are cooking and until ready to serve.
serve with curry.
